I became seriously interested in chess quite late, being already 19 years old. Studied it a lot, read many books, played in a few tournaments and finally reached 1st category ( back in Russia ). Then left it for many years, not playing at all, then played occasionally with computer.  Since 2007 started to play OTB. I progressed pretty fast from C class to B, then after some time to “A”.

My next goal is crossing 2000 barrier.

  1. Hey Rolling Pawns,

    I’ve got a new game that’s right up your alley. It’s called Chess With Friends and is played on an iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s a correspondence-style game that aims to reintroduce the joy of chess to a broad audience by giving players a game of chess in their pocket that they can play with their friends anywhere, be it while standing in a grocery line, sitting in traffic or lounging in bed.

    We would love to get your thoughts on the game. The first version was released on the iTunes App store a few weeks ago, and while it’s gotten some good reviews so far, we’d love to continue to improve it by getting feedback from experts like you. So if you or any friends have an iPhone/iPod Touch and want to check it out, it’s offered as a free download on the App store – just open this link from an iPhone: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=295436227&mt=8
